So, reading through these posts and flames for FEAR, I can get an understanding of the mixed emotions from the fan base. I will venture to bet that WV pen episode spoiled many FEAR patrons with great paranormal events and actually the best participant (can't remember his name, he screamed at the electric chair) of the shows. I understand that the pendilum swings in both directions. MTV wants that type of reaction from a participant again, for obvious reasons,(ratings) and has elected to do so through daring stunts, while unintentionally getting away from the heart of the show, fear through exposure to the paranormal. Hence, it is not the stunts that grasps us so, but the ability to empathize with the person sitting alone in the "hole" knowing that we could probably not fare as well as any of them. When the tension becomes to much for the participant and they break out in sweat, screams and "fear", this is where we become close to them and say "we could do better than that" while we sit in the safety of our chairs at home of course. I say the next season will be one to watch......By the way, great work Kris, you handle our rants and raves well, and with respect.

The WV pen episode had so much more time and preparation than the others. I wish we could do that with each show. Jonas was the producer and he is great! I hope this season is a good as I think it will be.

I totally agree with Daxx! I just saw the WVP episode and now I know what everyone has been talking about. The first episode I saw was USS Hornet and I've been an avid watcher since, despite the fact that I'm not one of MTV's prime demographics (MM-44). On a separate note to Kriss, can you give us a hint about what might be coming up in the next season? Please!

I signed a confidentiality agreement, so I cant say much. I can tell you that one location is a famous haunting. I cant say anything about the others without giving them away. I'm sorry. I will say this though, if you thought the others shows were scary, wait until you see these. I wouldnt want to be in these places alone at night, and I'm a professional paranormal investigator.

Is it possibly Amityville, which I have been E-mailing MTV constantly about without response. Even stating that my friend would be willing to spend 3 nights in the house by himself. Unfortunately he doesn't fall into the "age" category MTV expects..

Amityville is a hoax... its been PROVEN as a hoax... it is NOT haunted... if it is haunted its not those ghosts you saw in the movie and not nearly as haunted as say any of those "Screaming Bridge" ghosts that seem to be in any state...

Yaknow a place i would expect to find a HUGE ammount of Paranormal activity? OKC where the Federal Building blew up (Apologies to any if this seems insensitive) But im a firm believer that most hauntings or whatnot occur when death comes suddenly and without warning... there was nothing more sudden than the unfortunate happenings that day. My guess is that this being so recent that noone is gonna check this out... old wounds and such.. But Bet me... there will be some stories about odd noises and things coming from security guards and the like.

The Defeo House, in Amityville, is so not interested in any more publicity. I think there is something behind all the hype, but certainly not to the degree represented in the book or movie. I have heard from a source that knows the family that currently lives there that some manifestation still occurs.

The OKC Federal Building is out of the question. They would freak out if it was even mentioned. Its sort of like a shrine now, they wouldnt want a bunch of kids running around trying to talk to the dead babies. Jeez! Can you imagine the lawsuits?

Allow me to give a website. www.warrens.net
The couple that runs this site is probably the foremost experts on ghosts,poltergeists, and demons. The have a litle to say about Amityville. They also have several books on the subjects (most are out of print untill the movie about their lives comes out). Amityville was proven to be a hoax by a man pissed off that he did not get to write the book about it (after promised). The man who did write the book admittedly (as stated by the Lutz's) exagerated the facts to some extent and left out other things to create more interest. WHO IN GODS NAME WOULD LIVE IN THAT HOUSE!
Also, have you thought about Dudleyville, it's believed to be cursed and there are several stories of bad occurances. Including the one of the Monks that couldn't build a church on the ground of that area (it kept collapsing).

By Kriss on Friday, June 29, 2001 - 02:12 am:

I did think about Dudleyville, you have the right idea about locations! There isnt enough remaining for us to base a show on. Good idea though!

I have certainly heard of the Warrens, I even have some of thier books. If I am not mistaken Mrs. Warren was on the first FEAR. I know thier take on the Defeo house, but I also know what I have been able to dig up on my own. In my opinion the house is haunted, probably by a ghost with an attitude problem, but not nearly to the extent depicted in the book or the movie. Can you imagine? I mean, I have investigated cases of spontaneous blood forming and such, but the stuff in the movie was just plain crazy.

Hey, Kriss, a real good location is here in St. Paul. there are caves that used to be used long ago for storing food, it kept a nice cool temp. year round.
Then when prohibition kicked in, it was a haven to gangsters. Many famous (and infamous) ganster hid there, including Capone's gang. The thing is, the St. Paul police didn't stop it, they encouraged them to stay there and hide...
there are a number of entities there, included 3 people who were knocked off with a Tommy Gun, a lady working there at the time, called the cops, but when the police arrived, they didn't find ANYTHING. No bodies, no blood, only some bullet holes in the wall from the machine gun.
There spirits are there along with a number of others, it's almost a collection area for lost souls.
There are also reports of a couple eerily dancing in a vast underground ballroom, showing up at the exact same time every night, dancing around the floor...
It is in St. Paul, yet Isolated, because nothing else is there, and the caves are all underground, and secured. Nobody bothers going there, except for Halloween, when they turn it into a haunted house/caves type thing.
If you want more info, let me know, I can dig some up from the local Ghost Hunters...

I've heard of that place. It is cool, but its not isolated enough for us.
